    You could be a 20-something guy, or a 30-something guy…but I don't think you can be a 25-something guy. You're either 25 or your not. (Unless those months really matter at 25! )[/QUOTE]

    THX for your comment!

    I'm 56-something. at least I was when the bandages came off.

    I'd want Antaeus in my wardrobe at all times. It's a wonder that stuff that sells for 4 times as much isn't an eigth as good. All that said, I enjoyed a decant of the Prada but didn't feel it was bottle worthy.

    I'm wearing Antaeus on my left side and Shalimar on my right and listening to cats copulating outside.

    Anteus being a classic and all and the Prada is a bit more versatile, and less 80's.
    Saying that, I admit I wear the Prada more.
    Anteus can be a bit too much at times, ..for me anyway.
    Yes, one can wear Prada whereas Antaeus wears one...

    Yep I agree with that. Purely a power scent to use every now and then for me.... I could not wear Antaeus frequently.

    Go the PRADA
    In the wintertime this scent is so calming and whimsical.
    Save Anteus for your power-lunches and black-tie affairs.

    M7 comes to my mind. Agarwood & Patchouli. RG should have less agarwood then m7.

    Antaeus is here always mentioned as an powerhouse frag. The sensual, romantic side was an argument for me to put it in my wishlist and kick gucci ph & m7 (for a later buy).

    What a strange choice of the two... Why not buying them both if you like them?

    I would buy Antaeus, if I had to choose only one. I like Prada, but it's not comparable to Antaeus in terms of sophistication and style.

    prada prada prada, such an interesting smell in comparison to antaeus in my opinion.

    As i said in my last posting here. Antaeus is here always mentioned as an powerhouse frag. The sensual, romantic side was an argument for me to put it in my wishlist and kick gucci ph & m7 (for a later buy).

    But i am really wondering about this comment from the "You smell like a Girl" Topic:

    I can actually empathise with QuietEarth's comment. I mean I perhaps wouldn't go as far as that but I think to the 'simple' mans nose (without analyzing the scent) I think it can come accross as a bit "tart's boudoir"!

    I think that the fragrances heritage as an important part of perfume history is undoubted however if I have to spend too much time trying to like something and trying to appreciate it's masterful composition but not actually enjoying the smell to much... well I dont care for that.

    Those fragarnce are very contradicting each other. If you like soft fragrance maybe you will love Prada Amber.
    But if you prefer a strong scent you can try Antaeus

    Prada = soapy = good
    Antaeus = aromatic = bad... on my skin !!! I like the top notes but after 10 mins its so mute on my skin ><
